Baptism

Parishioners who want to have their child celebrate the sacrament of baptism at St. Anthony’s should remember that:
  • They must be a registered parishioner for at least three months at the Church prior to the request (if you are not a registered member there is a 3-month waiting period);
  • The Godparents must be practicing Catholics who are confirmed and no younger than 16 years of age (one person may be a baptized Christian in another Christian denomination, but then is only a witness to the baptism);
  • They must take part in our Baptismal Preparation.
  • Dates for baptisms are not available by request but follow the schedule of the Parish. 
  • If you are planning a baptism you must first call the office and fill out the appropriate form. Depending upon the circumstances you may need to speak with the Pastor.
